Q. Where is the most potential?
A. Downtown will remain important, as I’ve always thought it should. When the (MAPS 3 Core to Shore) park gets going, other things will explode. NW 23 will be big, and we’ll see the eastside grow, especially with the adventure district.
The Boathouse District on the Oklahoma River won’t be recognizable. During that time, it will be phenomenal, and it will have everything one can imagine. You won’t have rock lining the shore — you’ll see a boardwalk. The area will be a beautiful place to walk, ride horses and have dances. It will go back to the Delmar Gardens heyday (the riverside amusement park of the early 1900s), but in a much bigger way. We’ll see a carousel and Ferris wheel. But it will be modern, with a triple-story carousel. It will be a landmark. And what’s going up is already great. Just wait until 2033.
